More and more customers took advantage of our UKAS accredited temperature calibration work in 2014, particularly those customers working to the new clinical standard ISO15189:2012. Don Whitley Scientific has therefore invested in extra calibration equipment so that our team of service engineers hold all the relevant instrumentation to be able to carry out specific calibrations whilst on site. These are typically carried out at the same time as the service, which minimises disruption to the laboratory and therefore improves efficiency for all involved.
The investment in equipment during 2014 included a ‘high-end’ precision digital thermometer for our permanent laboratory, hand-held digital thermometers and precision stopwatches for our engineers.
Further investment in equipment will continue this year to ensure that we always have the correct instrumentation to meet our customers’ needs.
